THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Today's gospel is one of the resurrection
accounts from St Luke’s Gospel. It begins with the disciples
recalling their experience on the road to Emmaus and how they recognised
Jesus in the breaking of the bread. The gospel continues into another
account of the risen Jesus with his disciples. Jesus interrupts the
disciples story and greats them with ‘Peace’ yet, in this account, they
are terrified by this. Jesus shows them his wounds and Luke tells us
that they are full of joy, but they still cant believe it and think it
is a ghost. Jesus shows them that he is no ghost as he asks for food and
eats fish with them. Jesus then journeys with them back through the
scriptures in order to open their minds. He speaks to them
Jesus tells the disciples that ‘you are witnesses of these things’.
Luke wants to establish an important point, that these disciples are
witnesses to the resurrection, they ate with Jesus after his death and
he opened their minds. The resurrection accounts in the gospels are not
fantasy, they are actual experiences of Jesus’ disciples. Our Easter
faith is based on their minds to understand the scriptures, he tells
them to go out and preach them in this name.
